We reported about the Computer failures at the International Space Station (ISS) on Thursday. The latest reports from Nasa say that all failed computers are up and running again.

The crew is still doing some trouble-shooting and tries to understand the reason for the failures.

ISS Program Manager Mike Suffredini said: "Currently, they have all six computers up while we do some additional troubleshooting to understand the environment and how it affects the computers. The bottom line is it appears to everyone that the command and control type computers are functioning just fine."The Russian navigation computers provide backup attitude control and orbital altitude adjustments. For now, the station’s control moment gyroscopes are handling attitude control, with the shuttle’s propulsion system providing backup.
